For sci.bio.ethology and sci.bio.herp, this margin is adequate for newgroup
creation. Barring serious controversy about the vote, the group will be
created about five days after this is posted.

The margin was not adequate for sci.environment.biosphere, it will not be
created and may not be proposed again for six months.

Voting closed at 23:59:59 GMT, 2 Jan 1994.

This vote was conducted by a neutral third party.  

Vote-taker's address:		voting at brenda.jpl.nasa.gov (Brenda J. Roder)
Group proponent's address:	smith-una at yale.edu (Una Smith)

Newsgroup lines:

sci.bio.ethology                Animal behavior and behavioral ecology.
sci.bio.herp                    Biology of amphibians and reptiles.
sci.environment.biosphere       Study of the earth's biosphere.



CHARTERS

sci.bio.ethology:  for discussion of the scientific study of animal behavior
        and behavioral ecology.

sci.bio.herp:  for discussion of the natural history, biology, conservation,
        and scientific study of amphibians and reptiles.

sci.environment.biosphere:  for discussion of scientific research on the
        properties and dynamics of the earth's biosphere.

The newsgroups bit.listserv.biosph-l and bit.listserv.ethology are gated to
the LISTSERV mailing lists BIOSPH-L (Dave Phillips, davep at acsu.buffalo.edu
is the list owner), and ETHOLOGY (Jarmo.Saarikko at Helsinki.FI is the owner).
Each list has several hundred subscribers, who have been polled on the
question of changing the newsgroup names, and are generally in favor.  The
mailing lists would remain as they are;  only the names of the newsgroups
would change. 

It is expected that a mailing list will be gated to sci.bio.herp, as
extensive interest was expressed by biologists who do not have direct
access to Usenet at this time.  This newsgroup is proposed in addition
to rec.pets.herp because the traffic in rec.pets.herp would overwhelm
most e-mail subscribers.  The proposed mailing list owner, Michael Eisen,
eisen at xtal220.harvard.edu, is now looking for a site to host the list.



VOTE ACK

*****
      Please don't use this voting list to generate a mailing list (from
      either the yes or no votes) -- voters are not necessarily interested
      in the topic voted on.
